Plain language writing

  • An engaging and heavily interactive course.
  • Covers: using familiar words; how to write clear sentences; how to organise your ideas; how to present your ideas in a way that will make sense to your reader; and basic design and layout considerations. 
  • Includes several major rewrite group exercises and a "homework" exercise in which each participant rewrites a document (preferably back at their desk) then shares their rewrite in a group discussion. The discussion is positive and friendly. We believe the homework session is the key to getting people to really change the way they write.
  • Provides participants with the skills to create effective communications.
  • We can use your documents for some exercises we cover during the course (and for all the homework exercises).
  • We can tailor this course to address your specific needs.
